Sage Advice for 21st Century Television
The business about 10 seconds per subject and slow even panning has apparently been deleted from television filming altogether. The dizzying even nauseating practice of swinging a camera around has made many shows (especially on the Food Channel and on HGTV) utterly impossible to watch, let alone get anything out of.
Maybe in 1948 people had more of an attention span.
Excellent film with good advice no matter what you're using to shoot movies.

Don¡¯t be a schmo¡¦ Joe.
Very fun little upbeat film about do¡¯s and don¡¯ts when shooting film on your brand new camera. I actually liked this a lot, because it had a very down-home feel, and it presented some nice problems that the amateur cameraman could come across (eg low lens exposure, out of focus etc). I¡¯m assuming the cameraman got this film when he bought the camera, right?

informative and entertaining
This is an instructional video from 1948. Charlie Wright buys a camera, so his neighbor, Joe TitleHocker has to get one too. Only Joe sucks at photography, and Charlie's know-it-allness carry us through several photography tips, most of which still apply today.

Lovely retro camera in a gem of a movie.
I seem to recall the name of the producer Paul Burnford from my mid 1950's schooldays when we were shown movies from the "Fact and Faith' series.
Do any of these still exist?
